I have created 500+ defined names that refer to worksheets that do not exist (yet). When I add the previously nonexistent worksheets, the defined names that refer to them are not "live" and do not work in functions where that name is used. If you go into the defined names and click on the ones that refer to the now existent worksheet, they start to work, but I was hoping there was a way around this step (e.g. a simple macro that says "update all defined names").
I created all the names so that the person who will eventually be using this will only have to add an appropriately named worksheet and put the data in...then everything will automatically work. I do not think adding names is difficult, but the person who will be using this does, so I want to avoid that person mucking around in my names.
I have data map in excel. I want to create a program to flip the data map. The data from the top of the data map will flip to the bottom of the map and the data from the bottom will flip to the top of the map. The process is like a mirror reflection.
after a command button is clicked, the data will changed to be like this:
I am having some trouble with a variable range selection within a regression. I keep getting an "application-defined or object-defined error." I've isolated each statement to find that the code that is causing the regression not to work is below (the error for that line of code states that the Select method of Range class failed):
Trying to use a Defined Name as the cell reference in VBA. The idea is to change the value of a couple of other cells base on the value of the cell "FreightRow". I am starting with a Message box just to make sure the code was reading the cell reference.
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range) Dim FR As Range Set FR = ThisWorkbook.Names("FreightRow").RefersTo If FR = 3 Then MsgBox ("Help") End If End Sub
I have a column J that is named Premium. If I use the function =INT(Premium) in K4 then it returns the integer for the value in J4. If I do the same thing with a UDF then the function argument receives all the values in column J. The author of the function says this is how UDFs work by design. Is there a way to use defined names with UDFs and have it work the way it does with built in functions?
I use Vlookup's a lot so i define my range with specific names a lot. But when i want to clear the range names via Insert>Name>Define>"Select the range name then click delete. but instead of clicking on each range name, i would like to to delete all.
I can create a macro to do this but some days i use different range names that other days so the below will not work exactly.
I am currently overhauling a massive workbook, that previously relied on an absurd amount of named ranges in order to run vlookups. I no longer need these named ranges and would like to delete them to unclog the workbook. Currently I only see a way to delete them one by one. Is there a way to mass delete all of them?
I have several SumIf formulas that references a Cell in a Main Reference Tab. This is useful to me as I have over 100 tabs of data points and having a reference cell with that text is easier to change one time vs 100 times.
My question is this: Will Defined Names be "faster" than using a reference cell? With over 100 tabs, there's a lot of formulas and I'm looking for a faster way to get the same output without Excel Memory overload.
This thread is related to this thread. Offset, Match, Max Formula In the Insert - Name - Define window:
If one wants to copy a formula from the "Refers to" box and the formula extends past the right side of the box, how does one use "select all" or mark the whole formula from beginning to end so it can be copied without messing up the formula. At the moment, when I try this, it changes the formula to include the active cell of the worksheet that's open when I use the Ctrl + c etc. I have tried Ctrl + Ins and Ctrl + a and Ctrl + c. None of these are working for me.
I have a situation where I copy a worksheet to further on in the same workbook (essentially, using it as a template to create new sheets). I have certain cells that contain references to named ranges, e.g. on NewSheet1, cell $A$1 contains =StudyNo. Unfortunately, it shows as #NAME?. But, if I go to the formula bar and press enter, it resolves the name properly. I thougt maybe that automatic calculation was on manual but it is not. Why is this happening and what can I do to resolve it.
I am looking to create a formula which sums the values associated with several defined names. For example, I have a workbook with the following defined names SalesPerson1Total, SalesPerson2Total, etc. and these amounts are all sourced from multiple tabs. The amount of defined names (i.e. 'SalesPersons') is variable, therefore, I want the formula to read Sum the values of all defined names which are named with the following convention 'SalesPerson(X)Total'.
I'm trying to simplify a spreadsheet i've been given by defining names for certain values. I'm using Excel 2013. Is there any way to have all of the newly defined names I've created for cells automatically be inserted into all of the formulas that exist in the spreadsheet?
Old formula in one sheet of a workbook looks up a cell in another sheet with the value of ='sheet1!A1
I've given the value of cell A1 in Sheet1 a name of dgwd.
How do I get every formula in the workbook that references 'sheet1!A1 to change the value within that formula to dgwd?
I have MS Office 2003 with Excel and am comfortable creating formulas and have fun making spreadsheets, but have little experience with multiple tabs. They frustrate me. I'd like to set up a file that would essentially be a year of bookkeeping. Everything in view would be income, outgo, anticipated expenses, and running cash flow for a month. I'd like 12 or 14 tabs (1 per month plus overview and recap capability). If I make any format changes in row height or column width, I'd like those changes to apply to all tabs without having to copy the new layout to each of the other tabs. I think that would run the risk of also copying one months expenses/income erroneously to another month. Is this possible? I'd like to stretch a column, add column or row and have the changes apply to all tabs.
Also, most of the time, I like to have a tinted background behind my lists, but if a cost item needs to be copied from a green "expense list" to a blue "accounts paid" list, the color comes along. Can I copy only the text, not the format?
i have attached a sample spreadsheet that i am having a real problem with. each period i have to produce a report showing the week and period-to- date figures for various sites. the info is held in Adaytum and a view is created in excel that pulls in the data. i then run various formulae to create the report.
the cells in blue are a linked view from Cognos/Adaytum (an external database program). the cells in green contain a SUMIF formula that works correctly until the Adaytum view is changed, whereupon all formula with cell references within the blue area turn to REF#. don't ask me why, it seems to be a quirk of this version of Adaytum i use
so, in the example attached if i change from period 06 to period 07 in the Adaytum view, my criteria cells (B2:E2) would go to REF# and the green cells (J5:J8) go to REF# also.
the only way i have found to get around this is to use a vlookup, and extend the lookup range beyond the blue cells, ie. =VLOOKUP($H5,$A$5:$F$8,2,0). for some reason this works!
now, for a single weeks info this works ok, as the lookup is referencing a single offset column but i can't think of a way of then saying, "do the lookup and then sum columns B+C, or B+C+D"
does anyone have any ideas how this might work? can the Sum or Offset functions be used within a Vlookup?
I am looking for a Macro that will allow me to update the range of a Defined name range such as every time I add a name into the list, the only thing I will be doing is passing the client name and the list of client will be automatically updated and my drop down ListBox will show the new client name, which can be selected by the user.
In the attached file I am simply trying to get a percentage for a given group based on the column "annual starts". When I try and copy down the formula for the other cells it gives me an error because its using the wrong denominator (the errors show up in the excel sheet as #div/0).How can I make this consistent?
